Bruns and Spork has announced the release of Grooove, a virtual drum machine that enables the user to easily create vibrant and dynamic drum kits while making use of maximally two samples per drum sound.
Common drum plug-ins that rely on a multi-layer strategy, managing huge and often bulky and cumbersome libraries and kits, are a suitable tool for users that try to simulate real acoustic drums.
By contrast, Grooove is aimed at beat programmers and musicians who prefer a fast, inspiring and creative approach to drum sound design. If you want to compose individual responsive drum kits of a handful samples, Grooove might become your best friend.
